Living a precarious existence with his loyal companion Elgar (his cat), Ed relies on any snippets of work that his agent Ping sends his way, along with the odd 4p library lending fee from his only successful novel “Who Would Fardels Bear” and the repeat fees from his infamous episode of Tenko.
Consistently taunted and verbally abused by his one-time collaborator, Jaz Milvain, and the elderly members of his ex-writing class who now run the local charity shop, Ed battles on in pursuit of his writing career with limited success.
The show has a fantastic regular cast of Philip Jackson, Stephanie Cole, Geoffrey Whitehead, Brigit Forsyth and Barunka O’Shaughnessy and, in earlier series, John Fortune. Guest stars have included Jenny Agutter, Pam Ferris, Sylvestra Le Touzel, Raquel Cassidy, Celia Imrie, Alison Steadman, Tom Goodman Hill, Vicki Pepperdine, Duncan Preston and Jeremy Paxman!

The Ultimate Curmudgeon
Ed Reardon is just SO funny! I missed the last few series, having left the UK before they were broadcast, so am delighted to find them here.
Many, many thanks for taking the time to upload them all. It must have taken ages! (BTW, there appear to be only episodes 2, 4 and 6 of series 13 - may we hope for a future upload of the odd-numbered episodes?)
